Variety Club “gave a classy field a hiding” in Hong Kong yesterday when our dual Horse of the Year won the Champions Mile by 4 lengths. Regular jocky Anton Marcus used his famous fast jump speed from the gate to ensure that he eliminated his bad 12 draw early on, and then ran a comfortable second for most of the race . When he took the first place in the straight, it was really a case of who comes second.
Obviously we are all elated and it looks as if this 5yo son of Var can do no wrong, having been a winner now in 3 countries. Congratulations to owners Marcus and Ingrid Jooste, trainer Mike de Kock, jocky Anton Marcus and everyone who is involved with keeping our champion happy and fit!
